MENTORSHIP FAQs

–     Last updated January 2021     –

This is the FAQ page, the main mentorship page is www.legalgeek.co/mentorship

I have not heard anything about my application?

If you are a student your application will not be processed. Sorry, we organise a separate program of student events.

Spaces are limited for this pro-bono program. We will only contact successful applicants. If your application is successful, we will be in touch to invite you to the next stage of the process.

There might be a delay hearing from us because we only review matches in batches every couple of months!

When will the next cohort start?

The next mentorship programme is now live. To be involved you need to complete the form below and if your application is successful, we will be in touch to invite you to the next stage of the process. There might be a delay hearing from us because we only review matches in batches every couple of months!

How are mentors and mentees matched?

For the next cohort, we will be partnering with Guider, a mentoring software platform, to match mentors and mentees. Guider’s platform uses a mixture of neural-linguistic programming and machine learning to ensure a mentee is matched with the most relevant mentor for them. This is based on their skills, goals, experience, interests and business goals.

How often are mentors and mentees expected to meet?

We expect all mentors and mentees to meet regularly, at least once per month for the duration of the cohort.

Do we meet in-person or digitally?

Due to the current, and fast-evolving, COVID-19 pandemic we request that all meetings happen digitally to keep you safe.

STARTUP MAP FAQS

–     Last updated Jan 2020     –

This is the FAQ page, the main startup map page is www.legalgeek.co/startup-map

How do I report an error on the startup map?

Please complete this form to notify us of an error on the published map. We will do our best to fix errors in a timely manner, but please be patient with us.

How do I get my legal startup on the map?

You will need to be a live law tech startup in Europe. If your startup is missing please complete this form: my startup is missing. Please note the map is a snapshot in time which is only updated periodically.

How many startups are on the map?

There are over 250 LawTech startups listed on the latest startup map. While the map is in BETA we are not providing an exact number while we update the map. Learn how we created the startup map.

Why did you change the design?

The new design uses straight lines which can continue to grow to an infinite length and will allow us to make changes to the map quicker. Our new edition reflects the growth of the start-ups and scaleups we track: it’s bigger, streamlined, and more grown-up. Learn more about the design of the startup map.

When will the startup map cover other areas of the world?

Great question. We are hoping to roll out the map to other areas of the world in the coming months and years.
